Curry — The Spice of Life,
that statement truly sums up
Curry College at its best. Curry
and its many facets effect each
one of us in special ways. Curry
has given us all a chance to learn
and grow, to strive and achieve.
The friendships we make will be
lifelong. Most importantly, it is
thanks to Curry that we have all
been given the opportunity to
This opportunity has
manifested itself in several
different ways: Through social
activites and school patriotism;
hours in the classroom and
carefree summers; from field
trips to Cape Cod beaches to the
cultural attractions of Boston;
and through getting to know each
other in the good times and the
GINGER represents liveliness
and animation, everyone knows
that's easy to find at Curry. From
the everyday antics in the
cafeteria, to the often lively study
sessions in the library. There's
always a hot game of hacky sack,
frisbee, or lacrosse on the quad.
And then there are the weekends.
There's no livelier time at Curry
than a party in the cafe, a game on
the field, and a night at the pub.
LAVENDER — well, it's
close to purple. Patriotism at
Curry College can be no better
represented than by the school
colors. Whether it's purple and
gold, purple and silver, or just
purple, the statement it makes is
SAGE — the reason everyone
goes to college, the never-ending
search for profound wisdom. No
one will ever forget their days in
Issues of Modern Civilization,
Science 101, Human Values,
Fine Arts, Psychology, and Gym
. . . Gym? The many specialized
majors at Curry allow each in-
dividual the chance to pursue his/
her own interest. Together, these
two aspects of Curry have
prepared us for productive
careers and lives.
SUMMER SAVORY, oh,
those savored days of summer.
The excitement and anticipation
before each summer recess was
overwhelming. The cars were
packed when they left campus,
each student thinking of summer
sun, summer fun, and summer
jobs! While each summer was a
great experience, each student
was secretly ready to return to
school by early August.
SEASALT, what better to
represent the many Curry road-
trips. From Ft. Lauderdale in
March, to Bermuda and the
Bahamas, to everyone's Great
Cape Escapes, the seashore is an
integral part of Curry life. Who
could possibly return to campus
after Spring Break without a tan?
What would a sunny spring
Saturday be without a trip to
Houghton's Pond? Yes,
everyone at Curry does their
share of building castles in the
BAY LEAF, well, it shares its
name with the Bay State, that's
close enough. Boston and its
cultural attractions have provided
an enrichment all their own. We
cheered on the Celtics at Boston
Garden; a trip to Fenway was
always fun (not for the Red Sox
but for "Who's On First"); we
saw shows at the Shubert; spent
our money at Fanueil Hall; the
Museum of Fine Arts enlightened
us; we saw Rocky Horror at Ex-
eter Street; and yes, some people
even figured out the MBTA!
SUGAR and spice and every-
thing nice — sound cliche? No,
not necessarily. It is here that all
the goodness of Curry comes
together, the special "close"
quality that's characteristic to the
Curry Community, alias, the
' 'Curry Family . " At no other in-
stitution is this feeling so pre-
dominant, Curry's charm is all its
THYME to study, time for
class, time to eat, time to sleep,
time to party . . . party, of course
just on weekends Mom & Dad!
There are countless memorable
times we've had at Curry. There
have been good times and bad
times, but always a friend to
share them with. Then, of
course, there is the Currier-
Times, the bi-weekly chronicle of
goings on at Curry. As each
person passes through Curry,
their reflections will undoubtedly
yield "time well spent!"

Academic Program, it's 100%
I have been at Curry for three
years and during this time I have
noticed many changes occur,
mainly in the academic
programs. Being involved in
various committees on campus I
have been able to notice and take
part in many of these changes that
have gone on in this area.
Although like another student, I
have had feelings of discourage-
ment and disappointment about
my academics at Curry, I made it
a point to never give up on my
potential in both academic and
extra curricular areas, or in the
college itself, and the people who
have supported me.
I came to Curry because I liked
the academic programs the
campus and the people. I told
myself when I came here that 1
was going to make it work for me
(this determination was an im-
portant part of my success). 1
wanted to put in 100 percent and
therefore I expected 100 percent
What I like most about the
academic programs here is the
progress they have made. They
are better, more sophisticated,
and much more effective than
when I first entered. There is be-
coming a better variety of courses
and a great deal of expansion is
being made in such areas as
management and computer
science. Any person can notice
through these changes how aware
Curry is becoming of societies
emphasis on technology and
progress and how the school is
implementing the emphasis into
its academic programs. As a
student, this progress gives me
great confidence in myself; my
abilities and my education and its
effectiveness. This focus on
progress is making Curry better
academically and is attracting a
good student body and an in-
telligent group of faculty. I
believe students in the years to
come will be a more motivated
group of people and highly in-
telligent as a result of the very
sophisticated education which
they will receive. I now sense a
growing interest by students con-
cerning their education and fu-
ture. Students will be very lucky
to attend Curry because of its
academic progress and focus.
I have one year left at Curry
and although I am looking
forward to having a career and
graduating (they don't necessari-
ly come in that order!) I am find-
ing that my courses every
semester get more interesting and
thus my life as a student at Curry
becomes more pleasing. This
realization came very late to me
but once it did everything came
together, everything I had done
here at Curry made sense. I final-
ly understood how both the
college and I had achieved our
goals: they, to teach me manage-
ment and I to help them to teach
me by putting in 100 percent to
I would hope that every
student here at Curry would ex-
plore his or her own academic
and political potential. Help
others to help themselves (and
yourself) and make the faculty
and institution work for yourself,
and them, by contributing 100
percent. If students do these
things they will find that, like
myself, they will receive 100
percent in return. And, all of this,
is what I believe college, educa-
tion, and growth is all about: one
must contribute 100 percent if
one is expecting 100 percent in

Now I lay me down to study,

The 1985 Curry Colonels
Football season injuries to senior
cornerback Mike Bartow and
sophomore halfback Michael
Waithe put us in a deep hole right
in the beginning of our nine game
schedule. Then, sophomore run-
ning back Kevin Gingras also
went down to a shoulder injury a
few games later.
After an opening game loss to
Westfield State here at Curry, 33-
20, where we lost two key start-
ers, the Purple Reign stormed
back with a tough-fought 14-12
victory over Massachusetts Mari-
time in Buzzards Bay. We then
returned home to play Framing-
ham State on Parent's Weekend
iii the most amazing come-from-
behind victory in Colonel athletic
history. Trailing 28-0 at half-
time, we got mad and scored 35
unanswered points to win the
game 35-28, going away. I know
I will never personally forget that
When we lost the heart-break-
er to Marine Maritime, 20-19, in
Castine, and then lost again the
next week at home againist a
Bridgewater State Team that we
should have destroyed, we were
probably the best 2-3 team in the
New England Football Confer-
ence. Injuries and bad breaks
were just not helping us out.
Pride is what kept us fighting.
Never did we quit.
We beat Western New En-
gland College, 17-0, in a great
offensive and defensive effort.
However, I believe our best game
of the season occurred on Home-
coming against Western Con-
necticut State. We lost that game,
35-3 1 , but the level of skill and
courage displayed by both teams
on this day was unparalleled.
Western Connecticut was the
decided favorite, but we gave
them quite a game. I'll never
forget Coach Doherty's sadness
after the game, lamenting that
someone had to lose a game so
well-played as that one was.
We bounced back the next
week to destroy arch-rival
Nichols College, 34-6, at home.
We had an even record at 4-4
going into our last game against
league-leading Plymouth State.
Although we lost that last
game to Plymouth State and
ended up with a four win, five
loss record, we were winners as a
team. We knew we were going to
have a rough season from the
beginning due to our tough, but
young defense and the early
season injuries to some key
offensive and defensive starters.
But, we never gave up fighting
week after week. Our high-
powered offense triggered by
junior quarterback Bob Barrett
kept us in many games. I'll never
forget what I have learned about
life from Coach Doherty, who
never quit on us, and from my
teammates, all of whom I love so

The men's soccer team had the most
successful season in its history in 1985,
finishing the season with a record of 13-5-1 .
Coach Jim Kaufman later referred to this team
as the ' ' Record Breakers , ' ' due to the number
of records that were broken. Such records in-
cluded: most shutouts in a season, most goals
scored in a season, most wins and fewest
goals allowed. Better conditioning and a win-
ning attitude were the two main differences
between this team and teams in the past.
The Colonels were led by senior co-
captains Victor Manganiello and Artie Tefft.
Other influential members of the team were
leading scorers Kevin Smith, junior, and
Mike Driscoll, a sophomore. Also having
outstanding seasons were junior goalkeeper,
Steve Driscoll , who posted a record of 9- 1 - 1 ,
junior fullback Matt Clancy, senior fullback
Brad Pittman, and sophomore sweeperback
Jon Levine. Due to a successful recruiting
year, the Colonels were helped immensely by
an outstanding crop of freshmen, such as
Mike LeBrun, Jon Zane, Jason Salama, Joel
Skumil and Kevin Discroll.
The Colonels are losing just three players
to graduation, so 1986 could be another
record breaking season. Maybe once again,
the men's soccer team will hear that echoing
saying from Coach Kaufman, "We're win-

Wishing on a Star
Freshman year was a time for new dreams, hopes and expectations; those things we wished
for ourselves and for our newly discovered friends. Somehow through the uncertainty, or
maybe because of it, Wishing on a Star became the song of the girls who filled the second floor
of Mayflower Hall.
Since then, our constellation of friends has redefined itself somewhat — a few have broken
away, while others have become a part of us; bringing a new dimension and strengthening the
whole. During the last four years we've come to rely on each other for laughter and support:
always able to draw strength from our core. And because of these bonds, we've helped each
other discover our separate and unique identities.
So with the good-byes our graduation now brings, the analogy of the star has come full circle.
As we each are drawn to those dreams and aspirations we hold ourselves, our strength and
energy still radiates from our center — our center of friends . . .
This year has brought many new and exciting challenges and ex-
periences to us as Curry College freshmen. Upon entering Curry in the
fall we all felt the nervousness of going to college for the first time. We
felt that excitement of living on our own, making new friends, and
taking-on vigorous new course schedules. As the year moved along
we all settled into our new lifestyles and began pulling together as one
This year's freshman class has been very active and involved in the
Curry College community. Led by class president Geno Cenci and his
cabinet, consisting of Maureen Casey, Traci Masterson, Traci Rich,
Faith True, Eddie Ross, Scott Goldberg, and Edward Fitzpatrick, we
all worked together to come up with successful, energetic ideas to
raise money for our class.
Some of our projects this year included selling flowers at the
homecoming football game, holding a Christmas dance in December,
along with selling "Secret Santa" messages which the students found
different and enjoyable. We sponsored a few cafeteria dances along
with the "Mary Wong Comedy Festival" which proved to be one of
the most delightful functions of the entire year. The idea of having
dorm pictures taken and distributed to the students proved to be
another original and successful idea. The Freshman class also
sponsored the final senior party, providing the class of 1986 with a
memorable salute and farewell, along with a sincere wish of luck as
they venture toward the future with dignity and confidence.
Our freshman year has proven to be a very exciting and un-
forgettable experience. We have contributed a great deal to the Curry
College community in our short first year of attendance. As we strive
to make the most of our opportunities throughout our years at Curry
College we will continue to contribute wholeheartedly to the commu-
nity. We will face many changes and take-on numerous responsibil-
ities, remaining devoted to the betterment of Curry College as we
embark on the long and laborious journey toward our own bright and

To retell the trials and joys of each sopho-
more cannot be done here in such a small
space. The task itself would be enormous.
Even more a monumental task is the summa-
tion of what each of us has learned this year,
academically as well as socially. It would be
easy enough, however to bring insight to our
class as a whole; to what we've accomplished
as a body of individuals.
As Freshmen, our class introduced to
Curry what seemed to be a windfall of su-
perior athletes. That year, starting lineups all
across the athletic rosters were dominated by
us. As each new Freshman Class enters, we'll
get older, better, and may further contribute
to Curry's athletic excellence by being

been indifferent to our futures. We have been
successful for the most part. After all, we are
still here, though some have moved on.
As a class, we have been victorious. No
class was able to match our wit and strategy
during Colonel Pride Week — we won, that
event, and we'll win it again. Parent's
Weekend, sponsored by us, was similarly
successful. By the time we graduate, our
Snack Bar will have made us the wealthiest
graduating class ever.
Our real wealth is invested in our class
itself. As time grows, the class grows
stronger, smarter, more superior, and richer.
These are the only directions in which we, as
the Class of 1988, can turn. We'll maintain
this investment and make it pay off.
Sophomore Class President
Throughout This past academic year, the
Junior class has soared the new heights we as
officers, never imagined would occur. With
a lot of dedication and hard work, the class
pulled together to raise almost two thousand
dollars, where we began with nothing.
The year began with the planning and
organizing of a successful Homecoming
Dance held in Fanual Hall, an enjoyable
evening was had by all.
October brought an evening of costumes
and laughs in the pub on Halloween night.
The juniors offered bags of treats known as
Halloween- A-Grams to celebrate the holiday .
Even though the months of November and
December were quiet for the Class of '87, the
minds of the representatives and officers were
busily planning an action packed spring.
Winter carnival weekend began with an ex-
cellent evening of live entertainment and
The popular band performed for our
community. Saturday began early with ice
skating and an evening of relaxation at the
Curry Club. Sunday's movie festival featured
a variety of movies.
Valentines Day proved to be very interest-
ing for the junior class. The popular
performers. The Drive entertained a Valen-
tine's Celebration. The Dating game did
however cap the evening. Susan Shipira and
Stuart Strother offered their services in choos-
ing a date. The candidates, Linda Whitlow,
Julia Abrams, Candi Poll, Geno Cenci, Tim
Flarrety and all were contestants. Tim, Sue,
Candi, and Stu were treated to dinner at J.C.
Hillaries and free movie passes.
March brought several activities that
showed class spirit as well as dedication. The
annual Alumni Phoneathon was held in which
the Junior class officers raised, taking first
place, winning $250.00, all proceeds were
raised for new facilities on the athletic field.
Colonel Pride Week sponsored by SGA was
an excellent opportunity for 1987 class
members to pull together. And that they did!
Taking second place and $150.00, we all
showed class spirit in rare form. Con-
gratulations and thank you to all those who
Spring weekend consisted of an excellent
day of festivities. Greg Greenway, Mike
McDonald, and Pousett Dart performed in a
superb out door concert. A barbecue and so-
cial gathering took place following the con-

The past year at Curry was very exciting for
myself and the program board. I guess the
reason for this was the fact that I as a person
do not give up and, I guess, that is why we go
through our college years. We want to find
the right place for our lives to begin. We all
need a firm place to show our feelings through
the things we do and that is why I had to
change the program board. I found that there
had to be more communication to places like
SGA, the classes, and to Curry as a whole. I
know that there is alot more to be done but
with the help of SGA and the classes, the
program board will grow and be something to
be proud of.
The year as it stands now was alot more
than restful. From classes to events and a new
student activities director, I had my hands
full. I am glad that Cheryl Deutsch was there
when I needed help, support and a shoulder to
cry on. She was my right hand and more.
Words cannot express what she has done for
me and the college! Cheryl, my hat is taken
off for you. As things go I also need to say one
big thank you for the help and support of
Sammy and Coop. Although I do not know
what I would have done without them,
Sammy Rosenberg and Marc Coopersmith
helped out without being asked or told to help
in my goals that I wanted to do. They deserve
more than a thank you and alot more than I
can say but remember guys, don't let it go to
The last three people that I feel I need to
thank is Lois Wallace for her happy good
mornings and her help with unmessing up
situations that I feel would not have happened
otherwise. I also need to thank Nick Krach for
his help even when he did not want to and
showing me the right way to get things I
needed, and last but not least, Cathy Garrick
for her help as well in all the things I came up
with for her to do. To put it all together
without their help would have been im-
Curry's program board is getting there but
it cannot be done alone. You need to care if
you want an event to happen on campus. We
are all in this together and this is what Curry is
all about, "togetherness." Curry can only be
what you make of it and nothing more. Don't
forget what you can do when you put your all
into it! Best of luck to the class of 86.
V.P. David L. Kurtz
There is no doubt in my mind that the
Student Government Association this year
has been an extremely progressive one. The
association has grown and blossomed into an
organization that truly works for the entire
student body. However, the organization has
gone through changes since September of 85 .
The first major change was the resignation of
Michael Arujio. This occurrence allowed me,
Ann Money, the former vice president, to
step into the presidential seat, (the first
woman president!) The first action I took as
president was to put together an executive
board since it was incomplete. Gena Balsamo
became the vice president, whom previously
acted as the treasurer. David Kurtz remained
the vice president of the program board.
Linwood McDaniel was appointed treasurer.
Julie Abrams was appointed recording
secretary and Herb Kunius acted as recording
I could honestly say that the SGA helped
me in a very hard time. With no planning, I
had to take upon myself a time consuming as
well as a difficult job. I knew I would be able
to tackle this if I had their support. In a special
meeting for this purpose they gave me that
support I needed.
Now it was time to get down to business.
With seventeen strong representatives, four
from each class and a commuter representa-
tive, and sixteen hard working officers, there
was no question that the SGA- 1985- 1986
would be an action filled year.
The first task would be to put together the
forum. The forum was held on November 22,
1985. The entire SGA worked together to
make it a success and because of their dedica-
tion and hard work, it was just that, a success.
The forum brought about several important
issues and from these issues we based our
The association previously had committees
in which each member had to be a part of. The
problem with this was that several of these
committees had nothing to accomplish during
part of the year. For this reason, motivation
was lost which led to a point where the
committees did not meet at all. The new
strategy was to create adhoc committees
when a situation occurred. In doing this, the
members volunteered more readily because
they were interested and it made them
motivated naturally. There were still a couple
of remaining standing committees because
they met weekly and are needed throughout
the entire school year.
Integrated also into the procedures this year
was the SGA person of the month. Each
month an advisor nominated three individuals
from SGA who has done outstanding work.
Whether it be for the class or for a commuter.
The SGA then voted for one of these three in-
dividuals, giving reasons why this person
should be awarded. Outstanding persons of
the month have been: Mark Daly, Herb
Kunius, Linwood McDaniel and Kim
Colonel Pride Week was another added
attraction to the SGA. Colonel pride week
was a week during the month of April geared
to promote overall spirit on Curry's campus.
Each class competed for the title of "the most
spirited class." There was a scheduled event
for each day such as a day when everyone
wore the school colors, a shoe day, a hat day, a
colonel dinner and a party to close the weeks
activities. The sophomores won a money
award and the title, ' 'the most spirited class. ' '
John Harrington won for the most spirited in-
dividual during colonel pride week.
The SGA meetings themselves have gone
through various changes. Attendance records
were outstanding. The gallery was always
full. Students who did not have a title also
came to watch what was going on. Members
spoke out when they were confused or when
they wanted to be heard. The formality was
still there but members were more at ease
which in all respects is a plus. For the first
time, issues were discussed fully to lead to the
groups best decisions. One meeting was held
in the president's dining room to release
severe formality in the SGA conference
room. During this meeting the group became
a form of the choral club when we sang a song
together to advertise colonel pride week.
To the advisors of the SGA — Sam Webb,
John Boddy, Karen Kaslauskas and Cheryl
Deutsch, I am extremely grateful. They are
extremely hard working people, guiding us to
achieve our goals, leading us into the right
directions and gearing us back to reality when
we drifted off our targets.
I wish I had more space to mention accom-
plishments and activities the SGA was in-
volved in this year but I would be most likely
encouraging you to turn the page. But I would
like to thank the class presidents. Marc
Coopersmith, Jefferson Atkins, John Har-
rington and Geno Cence. I would also like to
thank Gena Balsomo who has worked
tremendously behind the scenes since day one
and who has not been appreciated half as
much as she should have been.
AH in all the SGA is made up of very spe-
cial, dedicated, hard working people. It
makes me proud to work with such fine,
unique individuals. It is my hope that next
year the SGA will continue to be the strongest
student group on campus, blossoming even
more to reach it's goals in the positive ways
that it has. The students of Curry College are
quite remarkable and I know it will always be
Seniors — may the years ahead be those of
love, joy and success.

your creator and serve your fellow man.
Home & family is the most important
thing in life. Take care of the physical &

"Best wishes from the Controller's
Best of luck to all my great Broadcasting
graduates. You will be missed.
To the Graduating Class of 1986, I say
congratulations on the successful comple-
tion of your college education.
One of the fun things about working in a
school is watching the students grow and
mature. I play a little game with myself as
I look over the incoming freshmen. I
wonder who will emerge as the leaders.
Which will become my special buddies.
Who will leave. Sometimes I'm right,
more often I am astonishingly wrong.
Whatever category the freshman fall in it
is fun to see them blossom as butterflies
from a chrysalis. You have witnessed that
education changes people as you
yourselves have grown and changed.
The friends you have made at Curry will
be your friends for the rest of your life.
Keep in touch with them. Take time to
make that call, write that letter, send that
card. Let Alumni know your whereabouts
— so that where ever Fate takes you, you
will always have that tie, that home base.
You are leaving a nurturing, caring
environment. Because of the good care
and education you have received, your
roots are deep and sturdy.
You will always be my "kids." Hove you
all. Don't forget Mother Curry. I wish
each one of you happiness as you go forth
from this College.

"Dedication" as a noun and "dedicated" as an adjec-
tive are two very different things. In its noun form it
means an inscription attached to a book, a place of
recognition — in its active form, it is the conscious way in
which we whole-heartedly approach a task. Dedicated is
truly a word we can use to describe Dean Hastings, and
this dedication is how we wish to honor that.
The Dean joined the English faculty at Curry in 1 964 —
the year many of us were bom . During his tenure at Curry ,
Dean Hastings has been involved in everything from
directing the Curry College Concert Choir, to teaching
English to ultimately assuming the duties of Dean. Since
1971 he has also served as the organist and choirmaster at
the First Parish Church in Milton.
Although adhering to his duties as top academic
administrator at Curry, teaching has continued to be his
first love — lucky for us. Dean Hastings, with his legiti-
mate desire to teach us in the classroom, and his sincere
dedication as Dean, has made Curry a better place for all
Always there for the students. Dean Hastings has our
best interests in mind: From explaining things that we
don't understand; to taking extra time to help us with our
It is with great pride and admiration that the Curry
College Yearbook Staff and the Class of 1986 dedicate
"The Spice of Life" to Dean Ned Hastings — Adminis-
trator, Teacher, Musician, and Friend.
